Wrapping Up April 2020

April 2020 has been a mess, but we made it! Today's the day for seeing how we did with this month's goals, and outlining next month's. Here is my April wrap-up; May's TBR list and goals will be posted soon, probably on Monday (May 4)!

Mini Book Review: Heartland Skies by Melody Carlson

Happy last week of April, Readers! As this month draws to a close, I'm sure there are more than a few people breathing a sigh of relief. There are also plenty who are grieving. Wherever you find yourself, I hope that this week brings a brighter shade of hope. Maybe it will bring a good... Continue Reading →

Tackling the TBR #8

Explanation: It has become apparent that my TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. Therefore, I have decided to do a post featuring ten books from it approximately every other week.

This is the second spring I have had this plant, and last year it never put... Continue Reading →

Whom Shall I Fear: 2020 Encouragement Post #9

As the world struggles with the latest developments of the COVID-19 crisis, I’m sharing some of the Bible verses and hymns I’m leaning on for encouragement. My prayer is that this encourages you as well, and is a calming breath in a digital landscape filled with anxiety and tension.

Tackling the TBR #7

Being at home all day, every day, has given me extra time to read through the books that I already own. I've made a good dent in my 2020 Read or Donate shelf, and I feel really good about how much I am reading and doing in general! I thought that this would also have... Continue Reading →

Mini-Review: Leaning on the Everlasting Arms by Laura Danner

Hello Readers! Life didn't line up for me to post yesterday, so today I'm sharing a very short review of a novelette I read last week! This touching little book is by independent author and blogger Laura Danner. I got to share the book cover last fall, and I have been looking forward to reading Leaning... Continue Reading →
